rub your nose in it


             principle     wrong

           Rub your nose in it, that is how you learn. Correct your impulse when you are wrong. This is done during a scene done in an acting workshop. After being critiqued on a scene, do it wrong like you did the first time, that way you build up a reflex that says I can't stand it, I hate it and I'll never do that again. Feel how it feels, you have to ache. Teach the body, that is how you learn how to act. In your inner ear you have to say to yourself, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong...

           Now, do it wrong, (do it the way you make me pictures of what you are looking at.)

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
